16 Great Reasons Why I Don't Feel the Least Bit Guilty About Being Lame this Week:

1. I'm sick.
2. Meg is sick.
3. Adeline is sick.
4. Elizabeth is sick.
5. Bryce is sick. I kind of don't feel too sorry for him, at least he only has himself to take care of.
6. I couldn't find the guts to tell my in-laws that I would rather be watching the season finale of Project Runway than whatever was on TCM.
7. I'm pregnant. I'm at that awful in-between stage where your normal clothes are too small and the maternity clothes are too big.
8. It has rained this week.
9. I had a parent/teacher conference about Elizabeth. Apparently she is a genius. I gloated about that for about 2.5 minutes until I came home and said genius was arguing over something trivial with her three year old sister.
10. I need to enstate a no-contact rule between Adeline and the rest of the world, but I'm not sure how to go about doing that.
11. I've read two depressing books about dysfunctional, crazy women and I've lost faith in modern literature. Never mind the fact that these were historical fiction books.
12. I miss Bryce.
13. I miss normalcy - no snide comments please.
14. I miss space.
15. I've devoted a lot of my genius to decorating/planning/remodeling my new house. We close on Monday!
16. I feel bad that I've been lame about blogging, but in all honesty I don't see a change over the next couple of weeks as I work on the new house.



  1. 1. Totally dumb.
    2. Dumber.
    3. Stupider.
    4. Lame.
    5. Whatever.
    6. It wasn't that good. I'll tell you who won if you want me to.
    7. Hooray!
    8. Dumberer. I'm running out of ways to say bad...
    9. Sarah is a genius, too! Until she's not.
    10. She can come to visit. If you come with her.
    11. Watch more TV.
    12. I miss you.
    13. Me too.
    14. You can have some of mine. Full disclaimer: it's in sore need of a good clean.
    15. I am counting down days and have considered making a paper chain. I'm really so, so excited for you.
    16. Read my blog and you won't feel so lame about yours.

    The end.

  2. Revision to #7. Hooray about being pregnant, not about the clothing situation.

  3. so you are pregnant. I was still waiting for you to tell us all. Again I see why I need to read your blog.

  4. Congrats!! I can't sympathize (I tried 3 times to spell that word and hope it's right this time. My brain is tired.)

    Anyway, I can't relate to being preggo with #4 since I don't have and won't have #4 without miraculous intervention.

    Second, I only had that clothes fitting trouble the first go round. With the 2nd two my body said, "Oh yippee!! Let's get HUGE!!" So of course I fit into maternity clothes long before I really wanted to tell people but no longer had that choice.

  5. Congrats Katie! I'm happy for you! I hope everyone feels better soon!

  6. wooohooo!!!!! Yay for growing bellies---although, only when pregnant of course. I feel like mine is still growing too, so there is no "yay" about it. I'm sick too, but I don't have 3 kids to be sick with me, and thankfully, Daphne's not sick. I'm really, really excited for you to get into your house. Hope everything goes fabulously with closing today!

  7. Congrats on the house and on the pregnancy. Hope you get feeling better soon. Maybe you'll get a boy this time around. Oh and you should have known your daughter would be a genius--it comes with the name!

  8. congratulations on the baby! When are you due? And when do you get to move into your fabulous new house? That's a lot going on in your world, That well, well, it sounds kind of freaky...will your house flood? fun stuff...

  9. Yay! You're pregnant so exciting! We'll have lots of new babies at the family reunion. Are you hoping for a boy? Although you've got the girl thing down pretty pat, I'd say you're an expert at it.
